David Fiddler has added a fierce new line in the Milestone Buttress area of the Ogwen Valley. Hustled (7C/+) can be found about 500m from the road up and left of Monkey See Monkey Do. It uses a sloping undercut and a nice quartzite crimp to slap to a good finger jug.
The Wager (6A+), first climbed by Sam Willis, is the overhanging aręte just to the right. This has a really cool sequence and serves as a nice warm-up if you do it enough times!
Although he initially suggested 7C, David got back in touch with the following thoughts: ”I did Ferrino footless yesterday (8A?), and Hustled felt harder than that and probably Grey House too. However, it doesn't feel as hard as Lightweight (7c+?), so I guess people can make of that what they will...”
